Week 8 Learning

Week 8 – 1/6/20 (summer term 2) – TOPIC: COLOUR

  • Spelling - Test yourself on ‘Jumping red words’– path, sugar, sure, two, worse and also Words to Log and Learn from2B Unit 14 – words ending in – tion: caption, nation, section, potion, option, fiction.

New Spellings – 2B  Unit 15 (last unit!!!) – ‘Adding the suffix – es’ : ladies, babies, families, multiplies, hobbies, copies, replies, spies, carries, cries, tries, bodies, flies, fries. All the root words end in a consonant ‘y’. So the ‘y’ changes to an ‘i’ then add es. So cry – cri +es = cries. See transcript resources and dots and dashes. Have a go at making a table with the root words and corresponding ‘es’ partners.

New ‘Jumping red words’ – kind, mind, behind, find, beautiful, poor. All these new jumping red words are ones we found tricky and put back on the wall so we could have another go at learning them.

Can you use all of this week’s spellings in sentences?

  • Phonics – the ‘ear’ sound spelt ear as in hear, dear, fear, near, year, ear. Can you spot/read these graphemes in your reading? Can you spell words with this spelling pattern? Can you use the words in sentences? Play ‘Fred Fingers’ and sound the words out with dots and dashes like we do at school so hear = ._

  • Maths – Topic – geometry – Position and direction. We start off by recapping position of an object – above, below, next to etc. (Have a go at putting a toy in different positions and describe where it is). Then we describe movement (Step 1) of shapes or objects like: go forwards 1 square, backwards, left, right, up and down. Then we describe turns (Step 2) – turn right (clockwise), left (anti-clockwise). Turns are a quarter turn right (clockwise), half turn right, three quarter turn right (clockwise), full turn etc. Then we put the 2 ideas together to describe movements and turns (Step 3) like: forward 2, turn a quarter turn clockwise, go forward 1. Have a go at the Zips & PDF resources for step 1 & 2 this week.
